Sean Carroll Photographs offers professional, high-quality imaging for cultural, corporate, and private events and performances. We're based in Pittsburgh, frequently in New York City and willing to travel!


Whether a gala fundraiser, rock concert, backyard performance, or a seaside wedding, I bring professionalism, poise, discretion, and a sense of humor to keenly document important happenings, here and around the country. With nearly 20 years of experience as a photographer and media producer, I provide flawless images that help tell the story of special events to supporters, clients, investors, family, and friends. 

As an event photographer, I approach each assignment with the the eye of a seasoned documentary artist, and the organizational skills of a movie producer. Adaptable on a dime and cool under pressure, I'll make sure your honoree, your board chair, your marketing team, and your mother-in-law are happy and looking good in the photos, all at the same time.

Before and during your event, I will work closely with you to ensure that we capture the images you want. and after, I will promptly provide digital files optimized for your specific use - whether, for print, web, social media, etc.

I grew up in a seaside town on the North Shore of Boston, and took my first kids photography class in 2nd grade at the local Community College. I rekindled my life in photography during college in Washington, DC, and fully dedicated myself in 2004 when I sought an MFA in Photography at Pratt Insitute, in Brooklyn, NY.

After over a decade serving clients in the art, photography, and cultural sectors in New York City, my wife, Danielle - an artist and educator - and I relocated and settled with our toddler in scenic and friendly Pittsburgh, PA in Summer 2016.
